    If your IE version is less than 11 then chances are it wont work....ever.
    Use IE v11 if you really need IE.
    Try other browsers to confirm that the movies are valid QT files.

    Sorry, I have another question. My QuickTime mov movie files only work on safari . So I am wondering if I change my QuickTime mov file to MP4, will it work on on internet explorer 5.8 because that is what I have? Thank you so much. I am still trying to figure out how to update my internet explorer.

    Are you sure its IE v5.8 as I cannot find that version, only v5.6 and that was back in year 2000.
    Which operating system are you using? Windows 98?

    It's highly recommended you update your OS (and browers) due to security and performance issues.

    Sorry, my internet explorer is 5.2 not 5.8. I am working on a Mac and not on PC. Both my iPad and my safari browser on my Mac shows my QuickTime mov movies perfectly fine. It is mainly Internet explorer that I am having a hard time with. I am going to see if I can get the latest version of Internet explorer 11 to see if my QuickTime movie will show up

    you can always create a test page which you can share the link to,
    and add a test .mov video file to it and check it that way.
    that way it wont really effect your website.
    just saying

    I am going to create a test page to test all my 4 videos. However, I think before I even convert my QuickTime mov files to MP4, I should test them to see if they will display on internet explorer 11 first(definitely going to get it.). If the QuickTime mov files don't work on Internet explorer 11 then I will definitely convert the QuickTime mov files to MP4. Thank you so much!

    Both pages report:

    Not Found
    The requested URL was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    @beadsx12
    I looked at both links in my IE 11 and my firefox 52.9.0 (yes its old i know)
    when you run windows 7 your limited on the versions you can lol.

    Ok As for IE 11, I cannot really answer because i dont have quicktime.
    or the needed plugins for it, and its too much B.S. for me to try to get them,
    mostly because i dont use IE 11 as default I use firefox 52.9.0 for default.
    plus the fact im using windows 7 (support for them is non-existent)

    On the plus side, your http://beads.x10host.com/Index/phfinalbtoday.html
    does show me the hampster video in my firefox just fine, But there is no audio.
    but the videos on page 2 do not show at all.

    I would suggest, and recommend converting the videos to .mp4 instead.
    as mp4 is more browser/windows friendly than mov files are.
    .mov was ok back when quicktime could be installed on 98 and xp without
    having to worry about "newer windows" or "newer pc's" taking over.

    also just for the record, i think IE 11 was originally included in a service pack.
    not as a separate download like IE 7 or IE 8.

    Wow, this is weird because my safari shows all my videos and all my sounds just fine. The first webpage also shows the first video in chrome just fine. I hope it shows the other three videos when I have time to test it. I can't seem to find an MP4 converter though every time I try to download it, Safari shows it cannot show this page because it is insecure page and than safari shows nothing. I am not sure what to do? Any suggestions are welcomed. Thank you so much for your help.
